Mock Newbery Reading List

October 14, 2009

If you’re signed up for the OLA/WLA Mock Newbery then you received the reading list in your email today.  For those of you unable to attend, I will share the list.  But first, let me say how difficult it was to come up with this list!  We’re not necessarily trying to predict the winners with this list, but give participants an idea of great books that have been published this year for a range of ages and in a range of genres, AND that will lend themselves to discussion. Since my OLA partner is a current Newbery member, it was left to me to finalize the list.  I hope people are happy with what we chose and excited to discuss these books!
